Julio Jones, Reggie Bush, T.Y. Hilton for CJ Spiller, Torrey Smith, and Deandre Hopkins

My friend wants to get this trade done, but I'm not sure if I should take it. It's a 14 man, standard scoring league
My team:
Cam Newton
Torrey Smith
Deandre Hopkins
CJ Spiller
Frank Gore
Kyle Rudolph
Montee Ball

So I'd be trading away Spiller, Smith, and Deandre, worth it?

Not worth it in my view, but it's close. Seems a pretty even deal, just depends what you want eg. If you're happy with 3 x RB2s and just playing matchups each week then I'd rather have Jones/Hilton than Smith/Hopkins at WR. Your bench would also be a factor, but you haven't mentioned who you've got.

PRETTY EVEN BUT I WOULD HOLD ONTO SPILLER - YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR ONLY TRUE RB1

I'd counter with Gore/Smith/Hopkins. You keep your RB1 and now you don't need to dip deeper into your bench for week 9 (Gore and Ball both on a bye). Your friend gets the starting RB for a run-first team.
